Nicole Kidman is set to join Colin Farrell in a new film from The Lobster filmmaker Yorgos Lanthimos, a rep for the actress confirms to EW.

The Killing of the Sacred Deer will be co-written by Lanthimos (who will also direct) and Efthimis Fillipou, the team that also created The Lobster.

The story will follow a surgeon, played by The Lobster’s Colin Farrell, who must deal with the consequences of bringing a sinister teenager into his families lives. Kidman will play Farrell’s wife, but no additional casting is known at this time.

Kidman’s next film Lion will put her alongside Rooney Mara and Dev Patel. She was also recently announced to be in the second season of Jane Campion’s Top of the Lake.

The Hollywood Reporter first reported the story.
